What you see is not quite what it seems...
Jo Lydhurst is a junior doctor, newly qualified at a London hospital. Desperate for a break, she escapes to the Caribbean for a well-earned ten days of rest.
On the beautiful island of Antigua, she meets an enchanting and diverse bunch of characters destined to become friends. There's Lowell & Vincent, Boston lawyer and Dutch art dealer - handsome, good looking, eligible to a degree; Cora and Fontaine, Charleston dowager and Southern Belle, mother determined to make a match for her child; Merrily Morgenstern, acerbic but lovable New York banker, sick of being single -- and shy English orphan Jessica, arts organiser extraordinaire.
Friends for life, the holiday becomes an annual tradition, but then Vincent is murdered back in Amsterdam and the Caribbean club becomes tinged with fear...
